I am so excited to be sharing my latest product with you today. Over the last few years of sharing and teaching hand piecing the most common thing I heard was “I am afraid the block you are showing is above my skill level”.
I want hand piecing and the quiet joy it brings to life to be available for everyone regardless of skill level.
But I also wanted to produce a template set that would not only help a beginner, and grow with the quilter, but would also hold value for an experienced handpiecer.
After months of analyzing blocks and putting their piece measurements into endless spreadsheets, I have come up with the 17 pieces in this set that I call the Basic Hand Piecing Template Set. The set ships in a 5″ x 7″ sturdy poly container that latches close for easy use to transport and storage.
This set of shapes can produce literally hundreds of different blocks.
A 23 page downloadable PDF is included in your set that covers not only pages of tips and tricks for hand piecing, but also my Roundabout Technique that will help you create sharp points and corners in your blocks. Inside the template set you will find a code that will allow you to download this PDF. Then this PDF can be used on your computer, laptop or tablet. Or you can print it out if you wish. Personally I have been using my copy on my phone!
Shipping of the Basic Hand Piecing Acrylic Template
is scheduled for the week of November 21st.
And a special preorder introductory price is now available until November 11th.
You can find the item in my store.
Plans are happening for a new and updated website which will include a page specifically for this product. That page will be filled with links to PDFs of additional blocks, completed blocks and even some quilt layouts. And there are additional sets in the works that will expand the number of blocks that can be created even more so.
Be sure to like and follow my professional Facebook page, MDQuilts ,as I plan to use the new Facebook Live feature to help guide you with hand piecing sew alongs and other fun stuff!
Remember the pre-order special price will expire on November 11th so order before then to assure your shipment of your set the week of November 21st.
